    Your Holiness Sivarama Maharaja,
    PAMHO.AGSP.

    Your Holiness standard for organized dance in Hungary is quite laudable;This come from a person who had very displeasing experiences with kirtan in Iskcon temples like wild kirtans,excessive loud voice,excessive loud playing of instruments,wild dancing,pushing and shoving,sensual moves(specially by the women),unauthorized musical instruments etc.Sometimes it looks more like a circus or a rock concert than Gaudya Vaishnava kirtan,definitely not like Lord Caitanya kirtans and what Srila Prabhupada instituted as standard.One thing that particularly annoys me is when you want to take dharshan of the Deities with undivided attention and then someone comes and grabs you by the shirt to dance in the crowd,because everyone should dance and express their “ecstasis”.Anyway,thank Your Holiness for establishing proper standard in this regard.I saw the video of Budapest temple and it seems very well organized and clean,quite different from temples that i visited and lived.

    In service
